Pictures are sufficient here for this post. Look at the cupcakes. Imagine yourself eating these cupcakes. Pretty dreamy stuff. Scroll down below for the recipe and make them... NOW!

These are quite simply the most delicious, fluffy and moist cupcakes we have ever made. We highly recommend them and the popularity of the recipe attests to their awesomeness.

Vegan Double Chocolate Cupcakes 
Adapted from Instructables 

1 1/4 cups AP flour
1 cup vegan sugar (we used Zulka Morena)
1/3 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a bowl, mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt with a fork, making sure it is really blended together. 
Add the water, vanilla, oil, and vinegar, and again, mix together so that it's really blended together. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides if necessary.
Prepare the cupcake tin, line with paper or grease then fill 2/3 of the way. Place in oven and bake for about 20-23 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Cool on a rack.

Frost with your favorite frosting!!

Aaaand here are some pictures of our house this year for Halloween. WE LOVE DECORATING! It looks 1438570 times better IRL but these will have to do :) 


  1. They look so tempting! Oh..I wouldn't be able to resist such temptation!

  2. Would this recipe work with gluten free flour? Also do you have a good vegan (soy/nut free) frosting recipe?

    1. I would use a Gluten Free All Purpose Flour MIX if youre going to make a substitution. As for the frosting, use this one but use a soy-free non-dairy milk. Hope that helps!
